Conʹrad (Lord)

.

Afterwards called Lara, the corsair. A proud, ascetic, but successful captain. Hearing that the Sultan Seyd was about to attack the pirates, Conrad assumed the disguise of a dervish and entered the palace, while his crew set fire to the sultan’s fleet. The trick being discovered, Conrad was taken prisoner, but was released by Gulnare, the sultan’s favourite concubine, whom he had rescued from the flaming palace. Gulnare escaped with the corsair to the Piratesʹ Isle, and when Conrad found Medoʹra dead, he left the island, and no one knew whither he went. The rest of his adventures are recorded under his new name of Lara. (Byron: The Corsair.)
